This article uses the case study of sexual health reform in Argentina to explore the leadership and coalition-building activities of key political actors. First, it demonstrates that women’s inclusion, even at high percentages, generates statutory change only when specific leaders build momentum for reform through issue networks and diverse coalitions. Second, that leaders must mobilize ressources within civil society and across government branches to ensure that successful policies are enacted. Whether Latin American women enjoy material changes thus depends on whether their leaders are committed to passing and implementing gender reform
